I have been making these rolls for about a year. With some tweaking, we have really enjoyed them. If I follow the recipe exactly the dough is so wet that I can't even get it out of the bowl. So, I usually end up adding at least 1-2 more cups of flour (on top of the 4 cups listed in the recipe). Tonight I looked online for similar rolls and found that others were using almost half the liquid. So, I decided to try to use less milk. This time I used 1 1/4 cups of milk and that really seemed to do the trick. There was no need to add more flour and it made a nice, pliable dough. Depending on the dough texture, I would probably do no less than 1 1/4 cups and no more than 1 1/2 cups of milk. No matter more flour or less milk, I have found that I only need to cook them for 20 minutes max. We have really enjoyed these rolls. They are easy and have such a great flavor. We like to have them as a side or use them to make little shredded chicken or sloppy joe sandwiches. Thank you for posting this recipe!
